Made from hand selected grapes from our vineyards in Rioja Alta. The color and
structure is obtained after alcoholic fermentation maceration. The malolactic
fermentation gives the wine suitable for mature aged in American and French oaks.
Before being bottled, traditionally clarified with egg whites. Finally passed into our
drafts which will age under conditions suitable temperature and humidity until the time
of going to market.
VINTAGE / HARVEST DESCRIPTION
It was a very wet spring followed by a mild, cloudy yet very dry summer. The
development of the grapes showed a delay of 8 to 10 days in comparasion with the
previous vintages were the grape came in advanced; in spite of this the grapes
ripened within the usual dates for Rioja. This delay continued until the harvest which,
in our vineyards, started on October 1 st . The grapes were healthy and the yield was
noticeably lower than in previous years which produced a good ripening and a high
Intense dark cherry color, with a top layer of color. Attractive aromas of berries, like
blackberries, black currant, raspberry, all is joined together with the spices aromas
from its ageing in the barrel. Its a complex wine very attractive on the palate, elegant
with fine tannins.
